This month I decided to create spotlight cards...this is a fun technique that has been around for years. Basically what you do is stamp image twice then punch out sections and mount them onto second stamped image. clear as mudd, right?  lol!  to confuse you more I used the left over piece to create a reverse spotlight.
Believe it or not it's 10 p.m. and I'm adding more cards to this post because I had an idea and just had to stamp in the middle of the night. lol!!! I got out my VersaMark ink pad and Perfect Pearls and went to town making sparkly cards with our peacock.
have fun with this stamp set!  Please go check out what  Janine has in store for you and also check out what the rest of our design team has to offer this month.
